I may have been starving the last time I ate here (two years previously). We came back because we loved it so much the first time. This time was more average. I had the ravioli because last time it was unbelievable. This time...eh! I wish I would have tried something else. It wasn't that great. Also, the service wasn't that... More

And make sure you have cash. You may have to drive around a while before you find a parking spot on the street near the restaurant. There is no parking attached to the restaurant. But it is worth it. Have the salad for the table first. And get a bottle of red wine served cold in water glasses. All the... More

We have a group of friends that dine out once a month. We try a different place each time. One of my friends chose Spiritos! If you LOVE raviolis and italian food, you must go here. The pasta was lighter than air. Undoubtedly the best raviolis i ever had! The salad was out of this world also. Plenty of bread,... More

Great Food!!! Service is hysterical. They serve bread but no butter. Pizza is to die for as well as the homemade ravioli and the veal is so tender you don't need a knife. A MUST GO TO!!!

The ONLY Italian restaurant that will order ravioli at. It is sooo creamy and delicious. As we live in Florida and come up to NJ twice a year, we always come to Spiritos, I've been coming here since 1952 when I was a little kid and lived in Elizabeth. About half the time that I go there, I will order... More

I've traveled throughout the US and Spirito's has the best chicken parm and ravs dinner in the country. Their thin crust pizza (I typically get the small pie) is also the best. Cash only, but as prices very reasonable you don't have to bring a lot.

Always the same for decades! Get the veal parm and raviolis. it never disappoints! Parking is an issue so be prepared to walk after finding a parking spot.

The best sauce without compare as well as the pizza! The veal and chicken pants are supreme and their known for the raviolis. The original 1950's decor and bring cash only.

I had the ravioli, nothing about it was impressive. Not enough seasoning in the cheese filling or the sauce. The walls were dirty as was the diner style napkin dispenser on the table. Not recent dirty either, long time crud built up. The waitress was fairly nice.
